those terms are wearing thin on moscow whose requests for evidence have been ignored when it comes to russia the proof doesn't have to be in the putting it seems. something by the way in the kind of smug sarcastic response that we've heard from the russians that to me but tokens that indicates their fundamental guilt. we've received very detailed information about this case which suggests that there is no other plausible alternative explanation. the attack console spree has taken place against the backdrop of a reckless pattern of russian behavior much of the case against russia seems to hinge on the nerve agent in question called novi chalk but everyone seems to have forgotten that a former russian chemist who's accusing moscow of the attack himself published the formula in full in a book back in two thousand and eight which is surely one of the reasons moscow has
demanded to be provided samples of the agent used to poison screwball and his daughter poisoned with a navi shop a military grade nerve agent of a type developed by russia. if britain is so confident that it was not a choke gas then that means they have the chemical formula samples and the ability to produce it we requested the russian government to provide an explanation by the end of tuesday the thirteenth of march on how this russian produce nerve agent could have been deployed in salzburg. they provided no credible explanation we are ready for open and constructive cooperation we don't speak the language of ultimatums and we won't allow anyone to speak to us this way and similar queries coming from jeremy corbyn in parliament were ruthlessly jeered and shot down by his fellow politicians as the prime minister taken the necessary steps under the chemical weapons convention how has she responded to the russian government's request for a sample. has high resolution trace analysis been run and has that revealed any
evidence as to the location of its production all the identity of its perpetrators is a consensus across the but then she's off this house yeah i am only sorry that the consensus does not go as far as the right honorable gentleman. you. could have taken the opportunity as the u.k. government has done to condemn the culprit here russia. at this point london has ordered twenty three russian diplomats and their families to leave the u.k. suspended all high level contacts between the two countries and announced a partial boycott of the upcoming world cup for their part moscow answered in kind when it comes to expelling diplomats shut down the british council and plans to close the british consulate in st petersburg and then of course we have more nations ready to impose sanctions in solidarity with the u.k. against russia between flying accusations threats and diplomats being declared
persona non grata the question becomes when all this tit for tat and and who will be last standing this is a carefully constructed drama that's part of the propaganda campaign that is building building now for several years in order to justify the actions of nato britain the united states towards russia this is extraordinary you so you have an attempted murder. you have a crime scene and you have no evidence but you but you have not and neither do you have a motive why on earth would russia on the eve of election and all the staging the the world the world cup want to destroy if you like it's international law with with such a crime it makes sense but there's plenty of motive on the other side of russia being a stick to really push the indoor corner with these accusations this is part of the
propaganda campaign and i can tell you that i'm a journalist who spent almost all my career working in the mainstream in. and this this is a problem. promoters and certainly in the media and we got my thanks for sharing your sunday with us here on our next on the way it's our special coverage of russia's presidential elections from all over the country live to red square just a moment. american

welcome to the party u.s. president donald trump has until may twelve decide whether to make good on his crap to exit the rand deal potentially a pending hears of international diplomacy and setting the ground for yet another conflict how seriously is that threat taken intact and should the american bullying be accommodated if peace is at stake while to discuss that i'm now joined by
muhammad leiter johnny had of iran's high council for human rights and deputy off international affairs in the area mr larijani a great pleasure great honor talking to you thank you very much for your time thank you but let me start with the news of the day and this is a concern in many corners of the world that the united states is going to read meat on its obligations on that iran nuclear deal concerned grew even more acute following the appointment of the new secretary of state in the united states does it make any difference as far as iran is concerned in who has the state department whether it is john kerry rex tillerson or mike compel for that matter. you know the view. of you know this is the verses doesn't matter to march the tactics or the articulation movie are different the.
impact on the nuclear deal was done and we are accepted that because you are going to approve of the american claim is false rumor of mine following nuclear. weapons at all but we have huge capability on the nuclear technology for peaceful purposes but no it is a perv and the americans want to use capability nuclear technologies as a pretext to exert pressure most it doesn't matter that we abide by the product or not i think it will definitely be not in the interest of united this even america gets out of this part then the fact is this because it is five plus one parked now the current american president expressed he's dissatisfaction of oil a long before he took office and yet in more than a year since his inauguration there's been a lot of bellicose rhetoric but the very little in the way off action in your own
calculus why do you think donald trump hasn't walked out of this deal already if he indeed intends to do that well there are two fires number one. don't know trauma's amount of bluffing not a man of realize actions so we know we are accustomed with american bluffing for over forty years and this is an extreme one secondly united decision wants to extract more concession from me wrong on the regional issues he is absolutely wrong it doesn't help and it was successful and now the american president doesn't exhibit their very reach for a cabbie larry in describing this deal he simply calls a very bad i wonder what words would iran use in characterizing the two thousand and fourteen agreement you spent a lot of man hours negotiating it did it come out as good or good enough for you while definitely we do not consider this pericope. americans him or
promote position. but definitely is not an ideal. the whole logic that we accepted these limitations on our own capability and development is to prove to the world or the american or their western allies claims an allegation against iran is wrong know that it has been proved that they are wrong and the atomic agency in more than ten reports endures the arraigning compliance you see that what the american are saying so this is a blasphemy this is corruption and the hypocrisy of the of the american foreign policy but on i want to say that. you know under this theory should not enter the will if they enter the will they would be the loser they would see that very soon as well as speaking about the potential loss perhaps for all of us president trump
specifically mentioned that he and his soon to be secretary of state mike compare tend to see eye to eye on many issues particularly the iranian policy and back in two thousand and fourteen mr peo advocated military action to fully destroy the iranian nuclear capacity do you see it as a credible threat well i don't think the american are in the position to another military engagement in their area already those who have a started before they are unable to manage to get out but to start on the attack on iran may not be very difficult task but they won't be the one who will dictate the end of that they will receive a very harsh lesson which may be good for them for the historical. so indulging in a military duty against iran is not an easy thing for united states while they are
facing ground failures in the region enough on the song in the persian gulf area another now president trump employed a similar strategy all threats of blackmail with north korea only to announce last week that he is willing to sit down a bit the north korean leader do you think the uranium leadership would be open to a similar turn of events a personal meeting with donald trump to renegotiate oh perhaps simply reinterpret the terms of the standing agreement i think is standing argument should be complied fooled by you know this that you know i did this news and also some of the european allies like the britain government are following the hypocritical approach to this this pact. both of them are most complying with. their obligation under the specs the first secondly we are in no way interested to talk
with. the government you know the suit which does not have any credibility in his promises on this signatures so. this is another third important point americans are afraid of the influence of iran in the region. oh influence is not military influence for this is a more political influence it cannot be destroyed by bombs it can not be destroyed by military action i think americans should redefine that interest in the region their interest in the region is defined in a very strong and not feasible way mr larijani you just mentioned that you believe teheran has no interest in organizing this presidential meeting between. the leaders of the two countries but i don't know trump is a very particular character he i think he is very easily influenced by his emotions
and your neighbors for example israel is making a good the use of that i know that the reigning diplomacy has a very very good tradition of being very very skillful negotiators don't you think that a meeting between mr trump or let's say mr rouhani could be useful not in a way of renegotiating the terms but simply. trying to establish number of four while first of all as you mentioned how diplomacy is basic feature is consistency your not absolute around different issues and time we have a vision and we can follow that vision which is corporation and peace in the vision consistently yes we are capable to negotiate to negotiate hard stuff on hard matters but the point is who is the other side the other side is
a country which does not have any credibility you cannot you cannot put your finger when any promises. they commit to that so we are think there is no need to this there is no fruit to this negotiation now it is well known that other signatories to the j.c.b. away including russia are eager to preserve these deal in the in its current form is there anything that they can do to encourage iran to respect it even if the americans under the current leadership walk away while one if americans walk away this pact is there but how does that if you can truce with the russia and china know a number of other countries definitely we will have our own solution for the problems that we face this cooperation want to stop with the parent or without the pact it will continue but mr larijani i think there are lots of people in moscow who would
share your disdain for the way the americans conduct their foreign policy but i think that does know that solve russian or ranee and responsibility to being committed to both regional and hopefully global peace should we give it so easily to the americans to rag the result of you know several years of negotiations should we allow mr trump to kill this deal no different than flu. we should prove to mr frum that he will be a loser and they won't get into march while walking away from this pact we have well known a strategy we have very much calculated the strategy we can come from the situation very powerful and i think the russian policy both in the region and international community especially reserve you the nuclear project is very rational we support the position we have various close collaboration with the government of russia now
speaking about the russian regional a policy there is some concern in moscow that the trumpet ministration may choose to try and turn the course of the syrian war by launching yet another unilateral strike on damascus and the russians have already would meet retaliation i'm sure that we'll see a unilateral strike by the united states as an act of a russian but i'm also sure that you have little interest in seeing a major clash between nuclear powers in your on your own borders or what is your understanding of what a proportional reaction to american aggression in syria could be i think americans and love the european allies of united states is very much watching observing that this that that you totally failed there was a cynical a strategy of this integrating a sovereign country like syria has faced totally i think the collaboration between
iran and russia definitely proved both internationally acceptable more or less support of who and very successful one we are we won't be afraid of this type of activity definitively we want to see that as much as possible the number of involvement of americans is sheer. should be decreased also should bestow american. presence in syria northern part of syria is illegal it is against international law he scored different from the russian collaboration with the syrian government which is based on mutual acceptance reliance. america's war one good and the thing by bombardment the selective targets they favor is better to money. rather than to advance gresham but mr larijani what i'm asking you
about is not so much about the american actions but about what actions should russia take in response to this potential act of aggression you you mentioned that you believe and i think again this assessment is shared by many in moscow that the american strategy in syria has failed but an argument could be made that that would make the united states even more predisposed to desperate actions or. actions that could attract the attention of the world because i think we would both agree that donald trump has a propensity towards showing off so if indeed he proceeds with delivering and not a strike on syria how do you think russia should respond why. none of us knew iran or russia they have interest in expanding the military conflict but our steps are very determined is supporting the russian people and the russian government to defend their land the russian position especially has been warded by president
putin is very acceptable and russian all they say that to definitely won't tolerate any threat to the years russian presence in this syria i think this is quite rational position america should not gamble on that they should not under under the skin of the there's a result in defense of his personality and this is the artistic presence but anyhow what is the mental is not some selective strikes what is the term mental determination of the people and those who are on the ground fighting to liberate the syria from the very minute some physicians will part of the terrorist group support to create to lead armed by the americans and british and others well mr larijani we have to take a short break now but we will be back in just a few moments.
the church seeker. that indeed catholic priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it quite literally i like to call this the do a graphic solution so what the bishop needs to do then he finds out that the priest is is a perpetrator is simply moves him to a different spot were the previous standards not the highest ranks of the catholic church help conceal the accused priests from the police and justice system to that end of as old as the eye and then angel yet it is this is out in the.
